Toward Realization of “Tokyo Zero Carbon 4 Days in 2020” and the Cooperation in “Carbon Offset Programme for Tokyo 2020 Games”

Request for Cooperation

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) is committed to becoming a Zero Emission Tokyo that contributes to the world’s net-zero carbon emissions.
As a part of our efforts in working towards this goal, we have launched the Tokyo Zero Carbon 4 Days in 2020, a project aimed at offsetting all CO2 emissions that will be generated across Tokyo during the four days of opening and closing ceremonies of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020 Games).
As the government of the host city for the 2020 Games, TMG is also cooperating in Carbon Offset Programme for the Tokyo 2020 Games, a project initiated by the Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games to offset all CO2 emissions that will be generated in connection with the games..
We ask facilities covered under the Tokyo Cap-and-Trade Program to understand and cooperate with the projects.
